Negative Declaration

Essex County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Revised Temporary Revocable Permit for Mineral Exploration by NYCO Minerals Inc. will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The NYS DEC has approved a revised Temporary Revocable Permit (TRP) for NYCO Minerals Inc. (NYCO) to conduct exploratory drilling for minerals on Lot 8. Lot 8 is a Forest Preserve parcel in the Jay Mountain Wilderness Area. This TRP is authorized by the 2013 Amendment to Article 14 of the New York State Constitution to allow NYCO Minerals Inc. to engage in mineral sampling on Lot 8. The TRP sets terms and revised conditions for mineral exploration activities. The TRP will be amended to reduce the total pad locations from 21 to 10 and eliminate the third phase. The maximum number of holes drilled will decrease from 21 to 18. Elimination of the third phase will result in a substantial reduction in the number of trees cut for access corridors and pad sites. Other amendments to the TRP include relocation of two pad sites and changes in the water system to allow winter operation. The project is located in the Jay Mountain Wilderness Area, Lot 8, Stowers Survey in the Town of Lewis, New York.
